    I just recently watched Povetkin vs Hunter for the first time. At first, I thought Povetkin had the stamina advantage over Whyte even at 40 years old but now I’m almost certain Whyte wins and probably by stoppage.

    Povetkin's left hook knocked out more people than crack.

    Same cant be said for Whyte

    Pov's was a thing of beauty and rapid, Whytes is also devastating but its sloppy. I'd say Whytes might even be heavier when he winds it up, but Pov's delivery and timing and success at landing it is better imo, much better

    Povetkin for aesthetics but Whyte can throw a sledgemmmer, seemingly from his elbow.

    Povetkin technique wise and for the way he sets it up, speed he throws it at. But Whytes is more dangerous and old Pov won't take many before folding!

    Povetkin is retired, he cannot box more than 3 rounds. Both guys are great technicians, they know how to box. Today, Whyte is at an advantage.
